OS/2 FTW - it's way ahead of crappy Windows in the Internet stakes. [The OS/2 server I left running at my last company was only shut down in 2008, probably because they didn't know how...]

In other news, I got divorced (oddly, this seemed to be a result of recovering from cancer) and then remarried (marriage gets to be a comfortable state of being after a couple of decades, you know).

Hey guys, have you read this cool series called animorphs? They are going to make a TV series of it, but I don't get cable, so I can't watch it (true to this day), I'll try to get the VHS at blockbuster when it comes out.

I'm not sure I get what is defined as "__ nostalgia", is it dressing in a similar way, listening to the music, or is it actually wishing you lived in that time? That just seems odd to me.

:( Seriously?
Man, I guess that makes sense when I do the math.
Still makes me feel old that The Sims 3 is coming out in like, three weeks or something.

The main reason people loved "Everything I Do" was because it was the song from the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It's hard to fathom these days just how popular that film was back in 1991. Especially the arrow-cam shot: folks went wild for that bit.

Actually, I saw that movie in the theater with my grandfather. It was the Best Thing. The trip I mean, not the movie; I was 9 years old, plus nobody else was in the theater so I could leave my seat whenever I wanted. I also found a $20 bill on the floor which I used to buy icecream and a ninja turtle. Best. Trip. Ever.
